The Nigerian film industry, known as Nollywood, is extensive and inclusive of Nigerians of all tribes. Nollywood, however, has its own subcultures, such as the Yoruba film industry, the Igbo film industry, and the English film industry.
The Yoruba film industry has made it possible for all Nigerian tribes to showcase their abilities. The Igbos, Edos, and many other Nigerian tribes have all been warmly accepted by the Yoruba film industry. In this article, I'll be showing you 4 Igbo actors who are making waves in the Yoruba film industry.
